Portland, Oregon’s Notice Recordings just issued a 100 cassette edition on my latest offering, Raft Recordings from Economy. The album is comprised of field recordings and improvisations completed during my 2016 residency at White Rabbit. For more information and to stream/purchase, visit the Notice Recordings Bandcamp page. And while there, make sure to peruse the label’s entire catalogue. Notice is releasing some of the most interesting new music being made right now.
In other news, I’m heading on a short tour. My first stop is at at the ten year anniversary installment of OBEY Convention.

I’ll likely take a break over the summer to work on scripts, but I hope to tour Western Canada and Europe this coming fall and winter. I also have a retrospective LP in the works with Feeding Tube Recordings. More details on that soon.
Since I currently find myself navigating through a number of disparate projects and artistic personalities, I thought it would be wise to put together a website, a digital space where all my pursuits can be housed. So here it is. Check out the chik white page for background on my musical work. For more general information, head to my about page. It covers my time with DIVORCE and OBEY Convention. It also gives information about my current work as a screenwriter at CUT/OFF/TAIL. I’ll use this blog to post about things that are happening in all these facets of my career.
As of late I’ve been spending a lot of time on my chik white jaw harp project. In November I released Malform, a full-length album chronicling my recent work recording jaw harp and voice through my throat. The album sold out quickly and has been reviewed by a number of outlets, including The Quietus and We Need No Swords. In February I released an EP, Soft Shapes, on Toronto’s Power Moves Library. The album sold out in days and has already been covered by We Need No Swords and Tiny Mix Tapes. I have two new releases on the way (cassette and LP), and I hope to tour later this year. More details to come.
